A little drive around town!

I like to drive around sometimes just to see what I can see!


This is not my house and not even my neighborhood.


It's close to the library and I took a little detour one day just for the fun of it.


Just some cutesy things I saw driving a different way home!


More fun to drive right now than walk! Hop ON! 

Oh, and come back on Monday and I'll show some pics of MY house, the Lavender Cottage!

I’m joining Thankful Thursdays.

Those are very interesting yards. It certainly is interesting sometimes to 'get out of our neighborhood' to see what other people are doing.

Hello, I enjoy looking at the yard art in people's yards. I like the dwarfs and the cute birds too. Fun sightings. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and weekend ahead.

I love to drive around and look at homes. There is one I always dubbed my favorite home in FWB... I make a point to go by once a year to see if it still looks the same.
And it is hot and humid.

Vee said...

That little motorcycle is darling. I also enjoyed seeing the dwarfs on the bench. Never when one is going to see something fun, which is why you are the smart gal taking your camera along.

It's always fun to drive and see beautiful gardens and homes. I'm with you...a Diet Coke and the AC. :)

Connie said...

I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of your home . . . it's always fun to tour the homes of my sweet blogging sisters.

I like a walking tour of our community.(when it is not so hot).
The things you see in yards are sometimes very funny.

Very cute. My front garden is very boring in comparison!!

You came across some delightful things on your drive. That bench with the gnomes is darling. I love gnomes, they're such cheerful little fellows. : ) I look forward to seeing some pictures of your house, Diane.

Have a nice Friday and weekend.

I like the seven dwarves (were they all there? I'm not sure) ... they seem to be doing quite well in the Florida heat and humidity. We used to drive to a different neighborhood sometimes, park the car and then walk for an hour or so just for fun and something new to look at. I might try that again; it was fun!

Art @ Home said...

Fun neighborhood near the library! I love the little dwarves. They're cute and made me smile this morning!

Stephanie said...

Oh, I agree, it is quite fun to drive around and see how unique everyone is with their home decor :) Such fun photos, my friend. Happy weekend! Hugs

Michelle said...

I like to do the same thing. You never know what might come into view! Thanks for linking up and have a GREAT weekend!

Lorrie said...

Touring around town is a great way to get ideas for one's own garden. The gnomes are cute! It's not very hot or humid here - I'd welcome a little rise in temperature!

We did just that this week during our getaway.

What a fun place to look at.

Diane, so adorable! I especially love Snow White's dwarves! ♥

Hello there my sweet friend in the Sunshine State! Oh, how I love to wander the neighborhoods too, we do that for HOURS HERE, more in the cooler months of course, it's so dang hot right now, we only venture out late evenings, it's the only time we can stand it. I do love to look at people's houses and yards....the more interesting the better!--well, you know I do because I post so many of them here! LOL I love that one you have here...they have many interesting creatures and things to look at...birds, a bear, gnomes, a pretty gazing ball, a sweet little statue couple! Sure makes walking more fun and interesting when there are neat things to see. Hope y'all are enjoying your weekend so far!

I enjoy looking at all the stuff people put in their yards, but I do not put much in my yard. I do have a gazing ball, a sun dial, a bust of a head that my son won, and a bird bath. Wait! that sounds like a lot of stuff! Ha! Ha! I think I have more than this lady has....just different kind of stuff. Oh, my!

I always enjoy a walk around the neighbourhood and peeking into gardens/yards ... you see some wonderful sights, some fun, some beautiful but always interesting.

Lovely post, I really enjoyed it.

All the best Jan
